    I am able to skip the Wi-Fi password part of the installation but the problem still remains. The circular mouse cursor keeps on rotating and the setup stalls. Yeah, if the free upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 had successfully installed I wouldn't be using Lubuntu but Windows 10 just kept on crashing the laptop. Windows 7 extended support ends in 2020 so there's going to be a lot of laptops/desktops being turned over to use Linux. To me 5 years of mainstream support from Microsoft for Windows is already old.

    Due to the ongoing evolution of the fixes for the recently announced
    Meltdown and Spectre security vulnerabilities [1], we are delaying the
    16.04.4 point release, originally scheduled for the week of February
    15. ...

    We are currently unable to set a new firm date for the release, but we
    do not expect the schedule to slip more than a few weeks.

    As announced previously the release of the 16.04.4 point release has
    been delayed. Seeing that things are now settling in, we have set the
    1st of March as the new planned date release date. We expect to have
    all the required pieces available in the archive by that time and will
    provide images with all the necessary security fixes in place.
